My brother was using his Daiwa Saltist AHI rod and Avet MXJ 5.8 reel, 55lb Daiwa boat braid same everything else.
We use the spin rods for jigging. Daiwa saltist rods and Saltist 4500 reels with 45lb braid, 80lb leader.
Overheads are a lot better for live baiting and actually fighting the fish.
Ain;t those Gulfstreams a nice rod? Use mine for tuna,
